    EVANSTON, Ill.-- Anna Edwards of softball and Jameson Oster of wrestling consistently pushed themselves in their strength and conditioning training and overall wellness and have distinguished themselves as October Sports Performance Athletes of the Month, Assistant A.D. for Sports Performance Jason Pullara announced.

    "These two upperclassmen gained the attention of everyone in the Sports Performance facility with their commitment to excel in every aspect of their training," Pullara explained.

    Anna Edwards (Softball)

    Edwards, a junior on the softball team, earned the honor for bringing the complete package when training and practicing, even with softball's regular season months away in February. "Anna is a tremendous worker. She has consistently displayed a high level of performance both in the sports performance facility and on the playing field. She is the first in line and always ready to go. Her mental toughness and great work ethic that speaks of great leadership is contagious to her teammates," said sports performance coach Tyler Jorgensen.

    Jameson Oster (Wrestling)

    "Oster pushes himself and his teammates past complacency with intensity and determination in his training and conditioning. He executes his training with purpose, rivaled by a few in the collegiate setting," said Pullara of the junior wrestler. "Whether he knows it or not, he's played a major role in his team's offseason success. Jameson is one of the most consistent and dedicated athletes I've ever been around," added sports performance coach Joe Nudo.
